This new course is designed for QA/QI professionals responsible for establishing, defining, and implementing an overall strategy and vision for their organization’s quality program for human subjects research.
Written and reviewed by experts, the course helps you understand the components of a robust QA/QI program and considerations for defining or refreshing your own internal audit program. It covers considerations for the structure of a program, how to conduct internal audits, and how to use findings for improvement. Modules focus on using audits as educational tools to identify areas where further training, support, and study management tools may be needed. The authors provide strategies for improving investigator and organizational compliance through communication, toolkits, and self-assessments.
